Why not have something different for your wedding bouquet
A lovely hand forged and painted to match your wedding colours

Heaven`s Ocean

rippling clouds on heaven's beach
seen so clear yet far out of reach

undulating patterns seem to fly
flowing freely across the sky

creating for us, quite a show
as this ocean seems to ebb and flow

so as the sun dips out of sight
these clouds disappear into the night !

The Roaring Falls 

thunderous noise of the water
cascading over the rock face
creating such an awesome sight
as it reshapes this eerie place

water will always find a route
as it forces though the landscape
pushing boulders out of the way
as the land find a new shape

crashing and pounding all it sees
pummeling every thing in sight
spraying the forest in a fine mist
rainbows reflected in the light

until the water reaches the floor
then a calm is restored again
oozing into the grooves of nature
emerging onto a vast plain

Waterfalls are noisy and fearful things, yet very mesmerizing too....!

Evening Light

day light changes as evening time draws near
sky's ablaze with bright vivid hues
dark shadows start to stretch across the garden
oranges, purples and reds replace the blues

landmarks silhouetted against the sky
with the sounds of day slowly turn to night
as the sun gently slides towards the horizon
a kaleidoscope of colours create such a sight

black buildings and trees stand out so strong
against the changing patterns in the west
for night sky has slipped in unnoticed
as the sun finally dips away to rest

Watching such a beautiful sunset while sat in my garden made me feel so good and relaxed.

Calling all poets, writers and singers.......

Lissie`s Poems is going very well so far
and I have only been in business around seven months
The future looks rosy and I am enjoying every aspect.
I have made many new friends and developed my poetry further.
I have new ideas for more visual poetry and you like it.
Poetry should be alive and bright, reflecting your inner spirit
not in a closed book left on a shelf.....
so lets celebrate poetry, enjoy i and keep it alive !

I am hoping to set up a poetry club, where people can come and read their poems,
or sing their own lyrics and even tell a story.
this would mean that it club would be an open mic
and anyone can come and join in.

Drop me a comment if you have any ideas or what to help/join in.!

Many thanks


Passion Verses

Wings of Love

Please wrap your wings around me
as I know you often do
your love is so important
it`s what helps us all get through

a piece of my life was lost
since Angels took you away
your battle may be over
but we will meet again some day

so now I look to the future
with happiness and pride
your support is ever with me
for your always by my side

I see you in my night dreams
we`re together like before
you`re with me throughout the day
though you`re on a distant shore

so hold me in your loving wings
watch over me from above
be proud of all that we have done
and wrap me tight in your love

Bright lights shining through my curtains
The whole sky full of vibrant hues
Birds chirping with the dawn`s chorus
I`m laying here, just wanting to snooze.

The colours of the sky have changed now
Awakening to the full rays of the sun
I am ready for what is thrown at me
Hope it`s full of laughter and fun.

My daffodils are flowering in the kitchen
My tulips are blooming in the front yard
The sun beats down upon my shoulders
The garden`s looking just like a postcard.

Sweet aroma of fresh coffee fills the air
The crunch of toast as I sit and eat
The morning paper rests beside me
My start of the day is now complete.

Purrfect Poetry

So proud to be connected with "Purrfect Poetry" published by Lost Tower Publictions. This was a charity publication raising money for "Headway" charity. This little anthology has been included in Oxford and Cambridge university libraries and more around the uk.

Name verses for beloved pets.


Beautiful feline
Unique in every way
Bouncy and full of life
Big eyes watching
 Lays stretched out in the sun
Elegant in repose
Such a big part of our family

Slumbering cat
Quietly watching us
Usually curled up on my bed
Exquisite to perfection
Always purring for attention
Kitten like when she chooses

My Sweetheart

Two strong arms to hold me tight
Two loving eyes bright with light

One beating heart that pounds for me
One big soul to set me free

Two sturdy legs that can support
Two happy feet for my transport

One pair of hands to grasp me so
One clear mind where love can grow

Two lips that kiss one another
Two sweethearts that love each other

One couple for all to see
One love joined in harmony

 Mother`s Wish....

I`m not a confident
sort of woman
just always there 
in the background
serving the household
no trumpets or fanfares

I`m a wimp, a coward
unsure of the unknown
hate confrontation
no arguments please, just quiet
nose to the grind stone
nothing special about me

I`m the house manager
keeping things ticking over
performing mundane jobs
cooking, cleaning, caring
shopping even chauffeur too, 
what every is needed

I`m also an individual
who has emotions
so there`s only one thing
I will ask of you all
a "please" and a "thank you"
and maybe an....." I love you" !

Time on my hand....

From dawn to dusk
hands continually rotate
counting out the minutes
of each and every day
ticking away my life
as the sun passes over
followed by the moon
day in day out eternally
twelve numbers showing
seconds slowly passing
from time on my hand.!

A prayer from my heart......

To lose my life partner 
is a hard thing to bear
the memories we've collected
all gathered up with care

now help me to cope with life
and bring up our family
yet there`s a hole in my world
until we`re united for eternity

all those tender moments
torn away from my heart
that cheery smile or sparkle
lost since we had to part

eight years have now past
and I miss you more each day
wishing I could hold you again
for I love you in every way

the angels care for you now
as you dwell within their light
please wrap your wings around me
and support me througheach night

this prayer is from my heart
feel lost without you by my side
Steve, with all these memories
I stand here with so much pride!

Love and miss you always  xx

Time for relaxation

After a stressful day
it`s time for relaxation
to recharge dead batteries
sipping a coffee concoction

watching steam curling upwards
so mesmerizing to my eyes
the room full of strong aromas
enjoy the moment, as time flies

with each sip, all stress disperses
helping ease the aches of the day
from my shoulders through to my toes
feel the tensions flowing away

coffee is the best medicine
to refresh the body again
take time out for relaxation
let the latte release the strain.......

mmmm coffee time and relaxation...

Chapters of Words and Pictures

Our lives painted in words and pictures
each stage forming a chapter
no matter what we say or do
all events play a major factor

for what we see in front of us
will affect us all in different ways
the good times and the bad ones
depends on  ways we manage our days

we all see things so differently
and that is good and right
for if we were the same as others
who would champion our fight?

as we grow older, so life changes
we learn from our mistakes
so when new challenges appear
we`ll strike and claim our stakes

I`m here and need your strength
to write down the next chapter
please help me to get through this
I look to you, my protector

Twenty Plume Moth
(Alucita hexadactyla)

With lacy wings spread out wide
delicate purples and white
a cloak made up of feathers
fanned in the evening light

long antenna angled down
matching the line of the wing
slender legs helping in flight
caught on the breezes of spring

fluttering among flowers
appears suspended in mid air
this strikingly beautiful moth
spreading its plumes with great flair!

Drifting in high.....

drifting across an ocean high
white rippling waves through the sky

bobbing in front of an orb so bright
casting shadows then reflecting light

singers on wings gliding on air
feathers flashing with much flare

light ever changing through the day
revealing nature in its own way....

so never take the sky for granted
it protects a world enchanted !

The Sparkling Haddock

Through the dark recesses of the deep
A flicker of light can be seen
With a swish of his long fan tail
Like a shiny sleek submarine

He swims through the mucky waters
Sun reflecting off each scale
He was the meanest haddock in town
Thinking he`s as grand as a whale

Because he`s so bright and shiny
All the fish put their shades on
Even when the moon was out
It felt as though the sun shone

Haddock`s friends, they tried to cope
But his sparkling skin was so bright
It`s never too dark where he is here
With his wonderful scales of light

I was chatting with a friend and the subject of poetry came up.  He wanted to know what was my daftest poem had been.  After a while he set me a task.......write a poem about a fish with shiny scales....oh and it had to be a haddock too.   This was the result !!!!

Reality Hurts....

Oh how I will miss your cheeky laughter
was so wishing for a happy ever after
but sadly that`s not meant to be
as I`m just left standing along sadly

placing flowers by your grave stone
wonder how I`ll ever cope on my own
never to walk with you by my side
my strength had left me, think I`ll go and hide

Bright Flowers  

Air is filled 
  with sweet scent
    as velvet petals

swaying freely 
  in the breeze
    bright flowers
      brings forth delight

My Plea....

If there is a god in heaven
I ask just one thing of you
help me cope with life right now
there's tough times I can't get through

It's hard for me to admit this
as I'm weak and insecure,  you see
need help over this rough patch
no strength can be found in me!

Break down at any signs of trouble
becoming incapable of mind
no one to turn to in times of need
please help me to be caring and kind

The love I feel for my family
may you give me some will power
something I really need right now
I don't want to hide and cower.

So Lord I ask if you can help
and that you'll grant me this one prayer
my family is all I have left
so to loose my sanity, I could not bear.

Thank you God!

Wings of Love

Wrap me in your wings
for I need to feel safe
knowing that you`re there
I`m secure in your love

feathers caressing gently
calming all my stress
helping me to relax
snug in your sweet warmth
missing your tenderness
wishing you were back here
so I could say from my heart
just how much I love you………

Reaching my goal…..

I enjoy painting pictures with the ink from my pen…..
layering the scene before me with tiny details,
expressing emotions from deep within my soul.
Now I am turning this passion into a book of poems….
but sadly I am stumbling forward in the dark,
trying to light my way with my words.
I will not cease with this quest …… so wanting to reach my goal...!

What if........

What if....I had loved you more
would you have stayed by my side
What if....the world had been kind to us
maybe we`d be husband and wife

What if....the distance between us had been less
this feeling of loneliness would disappear
What wrapped your wings around me
I would feel safe and secure in life

What if....we could all get on together
there would be peace and tranquility
What if...there was no battlers or war
there would be no pain or strife

What if....we had no responsibilities
nothing could stop our desires
What if.... we really showed our love
we would live a perfect life
